Mr STEWART (LANG, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Prime Minister. Has he or any member of his staff undertaken to investigate serious allegations made by Mr Jedlin of Crest Mills, Sydney, regarding trafficking in black market wheat and difficulties in the way of exporting grain in bulk? Is he aware that Crest Mills has been ordered by the New South Wales Maritime Services Board to quit its water frontage property on Monday despite its having contracts to provide binding needed for the manufacture of 220,000 sausages in Tasmania, soya products for Queensland and flour for the Northern Territory? Will he ask his office to move urgently to help the mills continue in operation until the allegations by Mr Jedlin are fully investigated?

Mr McMAHON - I have no knowledge of the statements contained in the first 2 parts of the question asked by the honourable gentleman. As to the last part of the question, if a letter from Mr Jedlin or representations from Mr Jedlin are in my office I will ask the officials to look at them immediately and see what we can do.
